    Revit Windows in Sketchup

    After importing a .dwg into Sketchup, I cannot figure out how to have the glass glass, and the rest of the window whatever, without editing components on each and every one of the windows. Plus, I have to get to both sides of each window. Is there an easier way?

    Have you tried putting the glass in its own subcategory in the Revit family?

      It comes that way, in its own subcategory. It seems like Sketchup treats the unit as a unit, and even though the glass has its own subcategory and its own layer, Sketchup doesn't care.

        Well. The skylights work fine (glass can be separated out). My windows models are the ones furnished to Revit by Anderson. So I need to see how the glass is somehow defined differently in the Anderson window families.

          Well. Here's one of my problems (one of my MANY problems!). I can actually change to glass in Sketchup's Layers. But I'm porting that to a plug-in to make 3D PDF's and the plug-in only seems to work with the materials defined by physical selection, not when you have Sketchup show "Color by Layer."

            i don't use sketchup, but awhile back i had to export ifc from revit and import it into archicad, and the same thing happened. each 'instance' pretty much translates across as it's own 'type' and each panel of glass had to be made 'glass', one at a time. revit doesn't use layers (at this level) it does physically assign all 'instance' materials. whereas i suppose sketchup(?) and others use layers. sadly, all associations get lost.

              ...maybe sketchup's viewport display is set differently than what your print settings are?
